Marry told FEMAIL:

“When a baby is born, it’s like everything happens really fast, but also in slow motion like time is standing still. But at the same time so much is happening.”

Marry Fermont’s ‘First Moments’ Photo Series

Marry Fermont, through her lens, has documented these unique and irreplaceable moments. She describes the experience of capturing the first moments between a newborn and their parents as a privilege. The duality of time feeling both rapid and suspended is a recurring theme in her work.

“To be present at such an intimate moment feels like a privilege and you forget everything that happens around you, except for taking photos of course.”

One notable image in the series captures a midwife handing a newborn to its mother for the first time. This moment encapsulates the blend of exhaustion and elation that characterizes the post-birth experience. The new mother, still exhausted from giving birth, shares skin-to-skin time with her crying newborn, while her partner supportively strokes her hair. Marry highlights how this moment is particularly special for the partner, who has only felt the baby kicking before this.

The Emotional Impact on the Photographer

Marry admits that she sometimes can’t help but be swept up in the emotion herself.

“Sometimes I shed a tear myself, because you are so into the moment,” she revealed. “This moment is extra special, because the emotions are so real. You can never predict what will happen in this moment and you cannot censor it. It’s one of the most pure moments in life.”

These photos not only document the first moments of a newborn’s life but also capture the genuine and unfiltered emotions of the parents, making each image a poignant testament to the joy and intensity of birth.
